Do it now

How can I encourage you all to plan ahead? Now is the time to plan for your festive holiday plans. It is amazing how busy the end of December and early January are in the traveling world. It is even not too early for next spring break plans either. As they say ‘the early bird, gets the worm!’

This week I had two request for June summer plans. They are almost impossible to arrange if at all.

The fall is getting busy too. October, November and into mid-December are great times to travel many places. The northern hemisphere is cool and the southern not heated up yet. The Caribbean is a bit iffy in the fall, but the prices are right. The huge summer crowds of Europe will have diminished. More than once I have wandered in Europe in November and December. Just put on a light jacket and go. Everything is open; concerts and special museum exhibits can be arranged. Restaurants will not be rushed to get in the next patron. Do it now…

A short travel advisor story. In October 2020 a client purchased two business class tickets in Emirates to Dubai for January 2021. The trip was cancelled. The tickets were over $5,000. Today after many calls and requests the tickets were refunded. More than two years later and another very good reason to use a travel advisor.

Happy Memorial Day and may the summer begin.
